Felicite Found blog tour

Today I'm honoured to host the wonderful Julia King - aka Writing Jewels - as part of her tour for her newly published debut novel. I'm excited because I've never featured a playlist on my blog before. I'm also excited to read her book because it sounds excellent! Take it away, Jules:

Félicité Found Playlist by Julia King on Grooveshark

This playlist sets the mood for Félicité Found. It isn’t a flowers and moonbeams plot, but richer and darker. Enjoy the songs and the lyrics that Julia feels are most relevant to her book.

Endlessly by Muse

There's a part of me you'll never know The only thing I'll never show
Hopelessly I'll love you endlessly

Go by Hanson

I heard your moving van
But I didn't take a stand
You can't leave with them
You can't live without them
I never thought I'd want to let you go

Tonight I Wanna Cry by Keith Urban

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes, tonight I wanna cry

The Reason by Hoobastank

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

Set the Fire to the Third Bar by Snow Patrol

I'm miles from where you are
I lay down on the cold ground
I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms

Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again by Andrew Lloyd Weber

Too many years fighting back tears
Why can't the past just die?
Wishing you were somehow here again
Knowing we must say, "Goodbye"
Try to forgive, teach me to live
Give me the strength to try
No more memories, no more silent tears
No more gazing across the wasted years
Help me say, "Goodbye" 

Everlasting Love by U2

Like the sun it shines
Endlessly it shines
You always will be mine
It's eternal love
Whenever loves are gone
Ours will be strong
We'd have our very own
Everlasting Love 


And here's the gorgeous cover and blurb:


Seventeen-year-old Pierre Rousseaux witnesses a young girl take a near fatal plunge off Pont Neuf Bridge into the freezing water of the River Seine in Paris, France. After diving into the racing river himself, he is able to rescue her from a watery death, but only after her head is bashed into the river
wall. Upon reviving her from unconsciousness, Pierre realizes she doesn’t remember her past at all.

The girl struggles to recall anything from before she may have tried to commit suicide, not only once but possibly twice. The few glimpses into her life are discovered through dreams that can only suggest her past was horrific and jaded by intense anger.

Her memories may force her to lose everything she has grown to adore, especially the boy she loves more than anything in the world: Pierre.

The girl, Félicité Moreau, must decide if the life she desires is enough to make things from her past right. Pierre struggles to resolve if Félicité means enough to him that he will fight for her, regardless of her past and despite his own personal demons.

With a paranormal twist, Félicité Found is Julia King’s debut Young Adult novel—a horrific love story.
